This is part of a series of blogs from Noble campus representatives to give a deeper look at campus life.
Throughout the vibrant halls of Gary Comer College Prep, you will find many adults who are investing their whole selves into the whole child. Contrary to popular belief, our summers are no different.
There’s something for everyone at GCCP this summer. CHAMPS, the male mentoring group that is taking the country by storm, will be providing employment opportunities to over 25 young men. The GCCP Science Department and the Comer Family Foundation will be sending eight Comer students to Maine for a scientific expedition learning about the history of Acadia National Park and conducting crab population research while there.
For the physically active Catamounts, the summer sports camp will be making its return to Greater Grand Crossing, covering over seven different sports for students to engage in. Last summer, over 30 students participated in the camp.
And at the heart of everything this summer, nearly 50 students from Comer will participate in the Summer Of A Lifetime program.
Summer Of A Lifetime is a unique program at Noble Schools that connects our students with universities and colleges across the U.S. to participate in summer academic enrichment programs

Of the students at Gary Comer who are participating this year, 24 students were matched and accepted into highly competitive programs and 27 students will be going to programs that are two weeks or longer. Forty-six percent of the students are black boys, which is the highest male participation in the last four years.
